What this session will cover

Has the art of persuasion changed for good? Expert advocates (and those who the advocates appear before) will look at whether we now need to adhere to new approaches and standards when conducting advocacy online and the changes that have occurred since this became the norm rather than the exception. The session will cover dos and don’ts for the effective digital advocate in conducting oral advocacy, cross-examination and re-examination and the cultural and ethical contrasts in international disputes.
